Claimant lawyers need a clear understanding of the general principles of damages as well as the know-how to maximise the client's claim. The APIL Guide to Damages sets out the general principles followed by a concise explanation of the law, practice and procedure regarding each possible head of claim. Each chapter contains a brief explanation of the law together with practical tips on evidence and procedure and is illustrated with sample calculations. The new edition has been substantially revised and updated to take on board the many changes since publication of the second edition, including: • PSLA - the new Judicial College Guidelines, which include commentary from Dame Janet Smith on the historic gender differential in the assessment of damages for disfigurement;• Loss of Chance - High court guidance underlining the 'scenario' approach to assessment of the effect of a head injury on solicitor (Clarke v Maltby [2010] EWHC 1201);• Smith v Manchester - guidance from the Court of Appeal on the Blamire approach and when it should be adopted (Ward v Allies and Morrison Architects [2012] EWCA Civ 1287);• Future loss of earnings – examination of the judicial application of Ogden Tables which now incorporate contingencies other than mortality; • Interim Payments – likely approach of the courts following CA decision in Eeles v Cobham Hire Services Limited [2010] 1 WLR 409; and• Revised schedules of damages and worked examples throughout.The likely impact of interest and benefits on the level of damages received by the claimant is clearly set out together with advice on when interim payments and provisional damages may be available, as well as how to deal with periodical payments and what investment advice ought to be given to clients.

These tables, prepared by the Government Actuary's Department, are designed to assist the courts in calculating the amount of compensation appropriate to a range of situations in personal injury and fatal accident cases. Also known as the Ogden Tables (after Sir Michael Ogden, QC, the original working party chairman) this is the 6th edition of the publication which supersedes the 5th edition (ISBN 9780115601170) published in 2004. The new multipliers use mortality rates from the latest available population projections, which take account of data following the last National Census. They relate to pecuniary loss for life and for loss of earnings to pension age, both for males and females at different ages. The edition includes a section covering discounts to the working life multiplier for contingencies other than mortality, based on two recent research studies.

Civil Costs: Law and Practice is well established as the authoritative reference for both costs practitioners and those who need a more rigorous analysis of the law than is possible in popular shorter works on the subject. Independent reviewers have said that it is ‘the Bible of the legal costs world’ and that it is ‘a life support system for every litigator’. All aspects of civil costs law are covered. The detailed commentary is scrupulously impartial, such that independent reviewers have noted that ‘there is not a single proposition put forward that does not have a detailed corresponding reference for the authority’. Reviewers have also noted that on ‘the rare occasion where the writer’s opinion alone is being given, this is made crystal clear’. The authorities are often quoted word-for-word, but even when they are not, they are cited, usually with pinpoint precision. There are literally thousands of footnotes, and where appropriate, difficult points are explained by way of flowcharts or diagrams. All of the rates and figures that a costs practitioner could wish for are set out in easily accessible forms, such as tables and charts. Many of the chapters have been substantially rewritten for the third edition, and all the major changes and developments since the Jackson Reforms are addressed, including: • Consumer protection and contracts of retainer;• Costs budgeting and prospective case management;• Relief from sanctions following Mitchell and Denton;• Human rights and the recovery of success fees;• The rise in applications for security for costs;• The greater use of orders for interim payments;• Changes in the way the Bar charges for its services; • Proportionality under the new overriding objective;• Provisional assessments;• The expansion of fixed costs regimes; • Part 36 offers, in both substantive litigation and in costs litigation; • The changes in costs procedure, including the compulsory requirement to make an offer; and• Changes to the format of Bills of Costs and Points of Dispute.Civil Costs is written primarily for members of the judiciary who deal with civil costs, and for costs lawyers, costs draftsmen and costs counsel. Civil litigators, barristers practising civil law and managing partners will also find it useful. Unusually for a practitioners’ text, it is well regarded by common law lawyers outside England and Wales. This is because its extensive citation of older authorities makes it easy to identify principles that are globally relevant.
